Perfect for every diver!
Extra Divers Makadi Bay is situated in the middle of the bay, right on the beach section of comfortable Cleopatra Luxury Resorts. Diving options range from house reef dives and short distance trips on the “felucca“ to half day and full day trips on our day boats. Thanks to the ideal location of the dive center in between Hurghada and Safaga, the most beautiful reefs of both diving areas can be accessed. Also, Madinat Makadi‘s hotels are either within a few minutes‘ walking distance or can be easily reached by the complimentary shuttle service of the dive center.

Weekly trips to famous Salem Express (110m wreck) and other impressive spots such as Panorama Reef, Abu Kafan, Tobia Arbaa, Ras Abu Soma and Carless Reef complete the dive site portfolio. An additional offer popular with guests are dolphin snorkeling trips to “Dolphin House Reef.“

Important Notice: New entertainment tax in Egypt
Unfortunately, the Egyptian parliament quickly, secretly and without warning passed a new type of entertainment tax, which must be paid to the Egyptian tax office from July 16, 2023.
Unfortunately, this amusement tax also applies to all diving services and so we, like all other diving centers on the Red Sea, must pay this tax to the state from July 16, 2023.
The tax rate is 10% on the full invoice amount and unfortunately, we must collect this 10% on the final invoice amount from July 16th. All other taxes such as the statutory sales tax (value add tax) of currently 14%. are still included in our prices.
